Children, God’s Not In Charge Of

The Taliban
just executed over 130 children
in a Pakistani school
and we are watching
Victoria’s Secret fashion show.

The oceans
are polluted
with an estimated fourteen billion pounds of garbage every year
and we,
continue throwing our cigarette butts and empty plastic bottles
out of our car windows or burying them in the ground
to eventually pollute, all of our, drinking water.

People starve to death all over the world
and we pay someone to hit and catch a ball, $79,000.00 a day
even when he doesn’t play, every day of the year
and for just pennies a day
children could be saved from disease and starvation
and yet
we let twenty-one thousand kids, needlessly die every day
while we shower, our children
with evermore repulsive lyrics, music, and images.

I could go on and on
but why bother,
for I have even heard many people say
that God is in control, of what happens on this earth.

I’ve got news for them, he isn’t
and what does it matter
if we are only, an evolutionary animal.

But if God exists
like the vast amount of you, seeming tend to believe
I’m pretty sure
that he’s not very happy about all the misery and injustice
that we are reaping, upon ourselves.

I thought it might be good to remind you,
just in case
haven’t noticed.
